Simone Pignoni (Florence, 1611-1698) was one of the most important exponents of the Florentine School, famous for his soft touch. Pignoni was trained in the workshops of Domenico Passignano, Fabrizio Boschi and Francesco Furini, his most important master. His education with Francesco Furini provided him with the opportunity to develop a sensual and delicate painting style. The bright glares, common in his style, could be compared to those in the works of Genoese painters, for example Valerio Castello. 

The youth Pignoni lived in Northern Italy, where he studied the great Venetian masters of the sixteenth century and updated his palette on the exeample of  Emilian and Lombard painters..
